Receptor autoradiography with [3H]L-glutamate reveals the presence and axonal transport of glutamate receptors in vagal afferent neurones of the rat.


The perikarya of vagal afferent neurones are located within the inferior vagal (nodose) ganglia (Palkovits and Zaborsky, 1977). Recent evidence suggests that receptors for a variety of putative neurotransmitters/neuromodulators may be synthesized within these perikarya and then delivered by axonal transport mechanisms in the vagus nerve to their central and… (More)
